wrasse is getting an attitude

My 6-line wrasse has been in my tank for three or four weeks now and he is starting to get more aggressive. I noticed he likes to pick on my pepperment shrimp when they come out but didn't worry about it too much. Now I see my featherduster has been staying in it's tube a lot. Caught my wrasse picking on the featherduster tonite. I can tell he thinks he owns the whole tank. My clown goby just stays out of his way. I was thinking about adding one more fish but now I'm thinking it's not the best idea. Is there any fish I could add that would be compatible with the wrasse?

If you wrasse is in there alone now, and he's already starting to bully things, good luck adding anything. 6-lines are docile as far as wrasses go, but they can get pretty aggresive in smaller tanks, especially if they are the lone fish in a tank, and you plop another one in. Plus, their quick movements can be startling to other fish, especially if the fish is new to the tank.

Would I be able to add something that stays at the bottom like a shrimp goby??

 

I guess I can always hold off until I get a bigger tank :ermm:
